A student in one of my classes just got her SAT scores back, and they were pretty dismal (she says- she was crying at the time, so I didn't want to ask any details). Yes, she already took the ACT. No better.
She's looking for a vocal performance degree, but doesn't want to go to a conservatory for undergrad. I've looked through the "SAT optional" school list, but there are lots of schools I don't know about and I'm not familiar with the vocal departments.
So, does anyone have any suggestions for me to research? The basic criteria is this:
1) SAT optional
2) East coast(ish). She'll go a distance if the program is really excellent
3) Very strong vocal program and teacher, preferably with some opera study (this girl is really something special, vocally)
4) Part of a college/university (but she doesn't like Eastman)
